cruise . I didn't have enough information yet to put it all together, until I saw this post in Quiltmaker magazine. Since then I've been making nine patches as leaders and enders to go along with the color of the month. Just a few each month, but they have added up over the last couple of years. There are even a few pink star blocks to give you the idea of how it will look when it starts to come together. It is a school holiday today! That means I have extra sewing time to enjoy. First I think I'll get some more of the nine patches sashed, and then I might even work on some stars. I think I'll do a general diagonal color rainbow, but offset the stars and nine patches by one color to give it a more blendy effect. I'm going to join in at Patchwork Times this week for design wall Monday in celebration of labor day.
